"This team has trouble written all over it", says Perry Lefko, a former CFL employee, who now writes for Sportsnet.
Thank you Lefko! He makes a big thing about the one game injured list! Hello Perry!; yes the Als have an all star team on the one game injured list, but all of those guys will be back soon!
I hate to use the term, ok I hesitate, but, "Our Als are not getting any respect". OK, I said it. Feel free to pile on if you agree.
Our team has question marks at MLB, safety, defensive end and the O-line. But, it is stacked at every other position. PLus, we have a great offensive mind in Trestman, Scott Milanovich and Papao. All 3 of those guys have either been or have groomed QBs. It is like the Als have 3 QB coaches.
If some younger guys (Bourke, Deslauriers, Emery, etc) can step up, and our vets stay on the field, I think the Als can be a dark horse. I get the feeling this team will start slow, but will finish very strong. I have a good feeling about our team, despite all the "experts" and their doomsday predictions.
